Cubs P Jon Lester allows 1 earned run in loss to Nationals
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Cubs pitcher Jon Lester gave up two runs — one earned — in Wednesday evening's 3-0 loss to the Nationals. 

Lester pitched a solid game, though gave up a home run to Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper in the sixth inning. Then again, most pitchers have found it difficult throwing to Harper of late. Lester was still able to strike out 10 batters.

Lester has allowed only four earned runs over his past three starts and now holds a 3.30 ERA. 

His next start is projected for June 2 against the Marlins. 


Nationals P Drew Storen earns save No. 16 against Cubs
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Nationals closer Drew Storen recorded his 16th save of the season in Wednesday night's 3-0 win over the Cubs. 

Storen allowed just one hit and once again didn't allow an earned run. He hasn't given up a run since April 21 and has only given up two runs in 20 1/3 innings pitched. Storen was able to record a strikeout as well. 

Storen's ERA is now at 0.84 for the season. 

The Nationals have won 21 of their past 27 games and haven't lost back-to-back games since April 26 and 27. 


Giants' Jake Peavy allows six runs in rehab start Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Giants pitcher Jake Peavy (back) surrendered six earned runs on nine hits and two walks in 4 2/3 innings while striking out two in his rehab start with Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday.

Peavy was able to toss 3 1/3 scoreless innings while allowing just one hit in his previous rehab outing, which came with Class A San Jose, but he didn't find anywhere near the same success on Wednesday while throwing 76 pitches. Out since April 17, Peavy is set to be re-evaluated by the Giants before his next step is determined.


Angels' Mike Morin getting better, recovery measured in weeks
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Angels pitcher Mike Morin is getting better after being placed on the disabled list with a strained oblique, but manager Mike Scioscia said the pitcher's recovery is a matter of "weeks, not days," MLB.com reports.

Morin was removed from Saturday's game with the injury, and it appears he'll be in for an extended stay on the disabled list. He owns a 6.00 ERA and 13:5 K:BB ratio in 15 innings.


Nationals P Max Scherzer strikes out 13 in win over Cubs
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer dominated yet another game this season, throwing 13 strikeouts in Wednesday night's 3-0 win over the Cubs. 

Scherzer kept the Cubs at bay during the seven innings he was in, only allowing five hits and one walk. The 13 strikeouts marked a season-high for Scherzer. He's only allowed two earned runs in his last four starts. 

Scherzer's ERA is now down to 1.51. His record is now 6-3 for the year. 

Scherzer's next start is projected for June 2 against the Blue Jays. 


Astros' Tony Sipp takes loss vs. Orioles Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Astros pitcher Tony Sipp was stuck with a loss on Wednesday, giving up the go-ahead run on a solo homer by Chris Davis in his team's 5-4 defeat against the Orioles.

"He's been there for us so much this year," manager A.J. Hinch said, per MLB.com. "A couple of pitches got him and he got burned a little bit. It's difficult for him, and certainly not the way and indicative of how he's pitched this season. I feel bad for our team. We fight back like that and don't get the win."

Sipp (2-2) struck out two on the day but gave up a home run for his second consecutive appearance. He owns a 1.53 ERA and 20:3 K:BB ratio in 17 2/3 innings.


Twins closer Glen Perkins records 18th save of the year Wednesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Twins closer Glen Perkins worked a perfect ninth inning on Wednesday in Minnesota's 6-4 win over the Red Sox, earning his 18th save of the season.

Perkins forced two fly outs and one ground out without allowing a man to reach base in the inning. Perkins now boasts a 1.19 ERA in 22 2/3 innings of work. Perkins has thrown three of the last five days and is looking forward to a bit of rest, according to the Star Tribune.

"[Thursday] is an off-day, so that's good timing," Perkins said. "I have been good this year. I have felt good. Ever since I took the last two weeks of the season off last year, I have felt good. So no worries, and I'm glad that I get a lot of opportunities to pitch."


Diamondbacks' Tuffy Gosewisch suffers jammed left knee
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Diamondbacks catcher Tuffy Gosewisch suffered a jammed left knee on a play at first base in Wednesday's game against the Cardinals, the team announced.

Gosewisch appeared to trip over the bag at first base while trying to beat a tag, and fell to the ground, where he was holding his knee and grimacing in pain. He had to be helped to the dugout and finished the night 0 for 3.

"It looks OK," manager Chip Hale said of the knee, per FOX Sports Arizona. "He will have an MRI tomorrow. We'll have to make a decision Friday."

The Diamondbacks' only other catcher on the active roster is Jordan Pacheco, who replaced Gosewisch in the game. If Gosewisch needs to miss an extended period of time, Jarrod Saltalamacchia is an option at Triple-A after being signed earlier this month.


Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud begins rehab assignment on Wednesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud went 0 for 3 on Wednesday for Class A St. Lucie as a part of his rehab assignment.

d'Arnaud, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a hand injury, was playing in extended spring training games before heading to St. Lucie on Wednesday. d'Arnaud has not played since April 19 when he suffered the injury and is hitting .317 with 10 RBI on the year.


Mets pitcher Dillon Gee strikes out four in Double-A rehab start
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Mets pitcher Dillon Gee allowed three runs, two earned, on five hits in 6 1/3 innings of work for Double-A Binghamton on Wednesday.

Gee, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a groin injury, recorded four strikeouts and two walks in his first start for Double-A. Gee was with Class A St. Lucie to begin his rehab assignment. Gee was originally hoping to rejoin the team this week, but may be called up at the end of the week.

Gee could rejoin the starting rotation on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week, according to ESPN.com.

He is 0-2 with a 3.86 ERA in 30 1/3 innings of work this season.
